Warner Bros. Shifts Seventh Son & Grudge Match Dates

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have once again moved their action-adventure fantasy Seventh Son by Russian filmmaker Sergei Bodrov and starring Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and Ben Barnes, pushing the movie back to Martin Luther King Jr. weekend 2014 with a release on January 17, 2014.

It’s now going up against the animated The Nut Job 3D, Ice Cube’s action-comedy Ride Along and the drama The Book Thief. It’s also now opening nearly a year after its initial planned release date.

In an equally odd decision, Warner Bros. has moved the Sylvester Stallone-Robert De Niro comedy Grudge Match up from next January the 10th against only one movie to Christmas Day, putting it up against four more wide releases.

It will now take on the long-delayed Keanu Reeves samurai movie 47 Ronin, Chris Pine’s reboot of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Ben Stiller’s remake of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and the adaptation of the play August: Osage County, starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts.
